Villa Savoye, Poissy
(4.2/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Designed by famed Swiss architects Le Corbusier and his cousin, Pierre Jeanneret, Villa Savoye represents a modern architectural masterpiece open to the public. The Savoye family commissioned the house as a country retreat in 1928, and it was finished in the early 1930s. The home became Corbusier's best-known building from the era, as it exerted an enormous influence on the international modernism architectural movement through its design. During World War II, Nazis sent the family to a concentration camp and used the house for storage. After the war, the French government took ownership; it was designated a historical monument in 1965.

  • What a lesson of this villa architecture. Please visit it by imagining the guns of the architecture of the time and lifestyle haussmanien of the upper class. It was daring such radicalism, custom architects Le Corbusier and Jeanneret did. Superb! Lines of light. It is a pity that the garden is in such State...

  • One of the attractions of this part of the Yvelines. This visit allows us to appreciate the conceptual vision in advance for the time of Le Corbusier. The villa was built for the Savoye, as a weekend home.

  • Since childhood, I've always wanted to see this house. It's quite incredible to think that this house is quickly nearing a century of age. One can imagine how avant-garde it was when it was built, wal...  more »

  • A great place to visit for architecture fans, which worth the effort for a detour in the outskirts of Paris. Morning visit would be recommended to avoid the tourist flow. The house was reconstructed a few decades ago, but according to the original plans of Le Corbusier.
  • Worth the trip, but make sure to take the bus up the hill!
  • This is a start point in the world's modern architecture and house building !
  • Interesting place
  • Part of the French pilgrimage for all architects. This building represented Corbusier's 5 point manifesto. Easily among the top 5 buildings of the twentieth century in terms of influence to this day.
